Daniel Deronda is a novel by George Eliot, first published in 1876. It was the last novel she completed and the only one set in the contemporary Victorian society of her day. Its mixture of social satire and moral searching, along with a sympathetic rendering of Jewish proto-Zionist and Kaballistic ideas has made it a controversial final statement of one of the greatest of Victorian novelists. Daniel Deronda contains two main plot lines - it begins with the meeting of Daniel Deronda and Gwendolen Harleth in Germany. Daniel finds himself attracted to but wary of the beautiful, stubborn, and selfish Gwendolen, whom he sees lose all her winnings gambling. In despair at her loss, Gwendolen decides to pawn a necklace and debates gambling again to remake her fortune. In a fateful moment, her necklace is returned to her by a porter, and she realizes that somehow Daniel saw her pawn the necklace and redeemed it for her. From this point, the plot breaks off into two separate flashbacks, one which gives us the history of Gwendolen Harleth and one of Daniel Deronda, then reconnects the two parties with stories about their individual and inter-related life experiences and how the two come to discover their true identities. Daniel Deronda uses the established Standard Works book reader already enjoyed by tens of thousands of users.
